I put in almost 3 hours of running today. Nice change of pace from the bike and it gave me a great chance to keep the hunter in me alive. With the very cold weather we are having right now, it's either running, skiing or sitting on the trainer at home. As I've said many times before, I love to train outdoors. I'm planning to run for around 3 hours tomorrow as well. I pushed myself a bit harder today, with heart-rates around 84-85% of max HR. Of course, I stayed 100% aerobic (sort of an aerobic time trial), but the body felt great and responded very well to the increase in pace. No stiffness in my legs and I felt as though I could easily go much faster. Running is certainly not "low impact" though and I can feel it in my legs now... I'm sure I'm going to feel it even more after tomorrow's session. I'm also on track with regards to my weight loss, I'm down to about 149lbs now which is a move in the right direction. I can still need to lose another 7lbs or so, but I've got 6-7 months to accomplish that. That's it for me today, not much else to report. As always, thanks for visiting.
